Here’s a brief Snow White GIF of some Babbitt animation.
This is Sequence 7A, shot 20A, as the Queen says, “Now begin thy magic spell.”
As these thirteen images play on a loop, imagine Babbitt flipping the graphite drawings in his hands, or watching them on a reel in a moviola to test the quality of the animation.
Subtle animation was a novelty, and the slow, slight tilt of the Queen’s head over a span of 26 frames meant that the pencil line variations were exceptionally slight from page to page.
This really was beautiful work.
